Jenny obtained a Master’s Degree in Social Work from LSU in Baton Rouge. She was a kind and accepting spirit who would always find the magic and wonder in life. Jenny had a passion for helping others, especially the elderly. She was a social worker and hospice bereavement volunteer, but above all, she was a mother. She loved her children and was very proud of them as good, loving, competent adults. She was proud to be the mother who raised such good children. Jenny and Sam enjoyed 40 years of marriage and experiences, with a caring, helpful friendship that remained until her death. Her greatest joys were reading, laughing and playing with her grandchildren.
Honoring Jenny as pallbearers will be Scott Chafin, Dr. Ben Gregorio, Laura Gregorio, Liz Davis LeDoux, Jerre Van Den Bent, and Bill White. Serving as an honorary pallbearer will be Sharon Swanson Lower.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made to the Volunteers of America of Northwest Louisiana at 360 Jordan Street, Shreveport, LA 71101.
We will miss you, Spooky.
